Join us in celebrating the opening of our Summer 2012 exhibitions on Friday, May 4. Members are welcome at a preview event from 6 to 7 pm, followed by the public reception from 7 to 9 pm.

Frederick Hartt and American Abstraction in the 1950s: Building the Collection at Washington University in St. Louis takes an in-depth look at the collecting history of the Museum with a focus on the 1950s and the works of many modern masters. The work of this year's Master of Fine Arts candidates in the 2012 MFA Thesis Exhibition provides a look at the contemporary scene and the concept of story is explored in the Teaching Gallery exhibition The Persistence of Myth.
